Each night your child should be reviewing their letters on their letter rings. They should be able to identify, make the sound, and write the letters. Sight words are also part of their daily homework. These words are seen frequently in their reading text. Once your child knows all his/hers letter sounds, guided reading books will be issued. It is imperative your child reads each and every night. Second six-weeks math homework is issued every Tuesday and Thursday. Second semester your child will be responsible for learning their weekly spelling words. Each Friday a spelling test will be given.
Each six-weeks your child will receive a report card. This is an overview of your child’s performance. Areas are scored 1, 2, or 3. You have probably seen this on you child’s assignments in their “Monday Folders”. In between report cards, progress reports are sent home to indicate progress toward the end of the six-weeks goals.

There is a conduct sheet in your child’s binder that reflects your child’s daily behavior. At the bottom of each conduct sheet it tells you how many marks/color changes your child can have to still be expected to be Gatorriffic. There will be some sort of celebration at the end of each six weeks for the children who are Gatorriffic!
Our school started using CHAMPs as a school-wide proactive and positive approach to classroom management. For those of you that haven't heard of CHAMPs, it stands for:Conversation - can students talk during this activity?
Help -how can students get assistance during this activity?
Activity - what are students doing?
Movement- can students move during the activity?
Participation - what does active participation look like?
The goal of classroom management is to develop a classroom of students who are:
Highly engaged in meaningful tasks
CHAMPS strategies will: Reduce classroom disruptions and office referrals, Improve classroom climate, Increase student on-task behavior and Establish respectful and positive interactions.
To celebrate achievement at the end of each six weeks there will be an awards ceremony. Dress-up dates will coincide with this ceremony and note will go home prior to the ceremony.
The end of the year is an extremely busy time of year. We have many events happening at Savannah, such as gator games, fieldtrips, fun run, and many others.
Our kindergarteners do not take naps because we are way too busy learning so many fun and interesting things. However, each day we have “recess” which allows the students to have down time to relax and play.
Thank you for coming and all your support. Have a good night!
